Cream Cheese Pudding Dessert

Cream Cheese Pudding Dessert from Kaye's Cupboard (2).When I was little, my sister and I would look through my mom’s Jell-o cookbook, taking turns picking out recipes we would eat if we could choose. There was one time my mom said I could pick the dessert for our weekly family night, so I pulled the red book out and pored over the photos until I finally decided on this one.

Cream Cheese Pudding Dessert from Kaye's Cupboard.I love this recipe for potlucks or family gatherings, because it is easy and quick to put together, and is a crowd-pleaser. The graham cracker crust is so good, I want to eat it by itself! I had each of my young daughters help with a layer, and I had to stop them from eating it before it was put together.
